Description: The idea for City Barbeque was born as an invitation to all the people in the city to enjoy great barbeque- America's food. Our award-winning barbeque is made with only the highest quality meats and served with our signature sauces on the side. Huge smokers are loaded daily to guarantee the very best hickory smoked, juicy, tender meat anywhere. So if an authentic barbeque experience is what you're after, look no further. Small groups of folks like us still believe in honoring quality, generations of tradition and true service. Whether you call it barbecue, Bar-B-Que, BBQ, or barbeque - we've got what you are looking for!

We have tried pulled pork barbecue all around the country. We prefer southern style with coleslaw and vinegar sauce. There is absolutely no other barbecue restaurant that comes near to City Barbecue. There are several in Cincinnati but we prefer the one at Eastgate. Order a family take out box for plenty of pulled pork, your favorite sides, your choice of sauce, corn bread, and buns. It's a superb way of having a meal with family or visiting friends.

You know that you have found a great BBQ House simply by the great smiles while walking from the parking lot. Not fair enjoying my BBQ Chicken while folks running outside the gym next door, sure the great smiles do not help the weight watchers. The mustard sauce was my favorite, usually not but it had a hot side. The greens with brisket simply great with in-house spicy vinegar.

Food was so good we eat there 3 days in the first week we were there and had to go back again before we went home. in the UK we don't do BBQ so always try to ave some when in the US, this has to be one of the best, all the usual thing you old expect smoked to perfection, and the beans, just amazing.

Good value, 4 of us couldn't finish 2 f the platters there was so much food and after trying the other more famous Cincy BBQ we know which one we will go back to.

Brisket a little overdone but there was a good smoky flavor.
The brushfire sauce had a little heat.
Pretty good. Friendly service.
